Here are some of the players who we feel are the top talents in Suffolk County on Long Island. No particular order.

  Patrick Burke Patrick Burke 6'2" | PF Smithtown West | 2023 State NY .      6”6.     2023      Smithtown West HS

Does a really good job on the boards in traffic. Can score the ball with either hand inside. Consistently knocks down open threes. Has a deceptive handle getting to the rim.

Preston Edmead Preston Edmead 5'5" | PG Deer Park | 2024 State NY .    5”8.    2024.     Deer Park HS

Has a tremendous point guard skill set. Excellent handle with great vision. Equally good in the half-court or on the break. Extremely quick getting into the lane. Tough player to keep in front. A scorer of the ball either from deep range or driving it. 

Nick Watts Nick Watts 6'7" | PF Northport | 2022 State NY .          6”8.      2022.       Northport HS

Knows the importance of gaining good post position. Has a right handed jump hook over the left shoulder that if he gets position is hard to stop. Seals his man on entry passes and scores the ball. Very good passer out of the post.

Malachi Moore Malachi Moore 6'2" | CG Copiague | 2023 State NY .      6”2.       2022.
